The L16 camera is a multi-aperture computational camera being offered by photography technology startup Light.

The camera derives its name from the fact that it is equipped with 16 individual lenses. However, unlike chunky DSLR cameras, this particular camera is about the size of a Nexus 6 smartphone even if it is about twice as thick.

When you snap a picture with this camera, all 16 lenses simultaneously capture photos at different focal lengths, allowing it to "capture more data in every shot". Light's special proprietary technology then distills all the data into a single 52-megapixel image. Users can adjust the focus, exposure and depth of field of images after they are captured.

It's pretty incredible that this kind of high-end functionality is now available in a camera this small and compact.
